Premier League Talking Points

Leroy Sane impressed Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola with his dancing and his performance against Brighton and Hove

He danced good and played good too – Guardiola praises Sane

Club sources insist they have no interest in trying to sign a new striker in the summer, with City happy with their options of Aguero and Gabriel Jesus after the pair helped them to the Premier League title and Carabao Cup.

Toure joined City in 2010, and went on to claim seven major honours with the Citizens having been convinced by his brother Kolo to leave Guardiola's Barcelona, and the former defender made a surprise appearance alongside his younger sibling.

"It's happened many times in these press conferences and I said maybe a thousand times - Sergio is going to stay until he decides his time is over". "My desire is it will not happen, but I don't know". I'm proud of this and the kids are going to remember me and it will stay a long long time.

But, linked to Burnley, Wolves and Everton, he could yet be facing Pep Guardiola's side next season as he said he would not be chasing riches from clubs in the UAE, Saudia Arabia, Qatar or the Far East.

"That is why I say it is not going to happen".

"People are talking about me doing something for this club, but we have to thank players like Joe Hart, Pablo Zabaleta, Joleon Lescott as well".

Guardiola said City could bring in "one or maybe two" players this summer.

Huddersfield proved last week's goalless draw against champions Manchester City was no fluke by playing out a 1-1 draw against Chelsea on Friday to consolidate their Premier League status.

Arsenal will find it hard to replace Wenger - Gilberto Silva
Even with my experience, when it was 1-0 in the second half [of the first leg] I never thought it would finish 1-1. The financial situation, we have good players, the stadium - it's all there", Wenger said.

The man got hold of the microphone but was quickly tackled by security and taken away while SuRie stood by. The man is in police custody, the European Broadcast Union, which stages Eurovision, said in a statement.

"Now we are going to change some details".

But, uniquely, this year the survival pattern has been replicated throughout the league pyramid with Sheffield United, Millwall and Bolton staying up in the Championship, Portsmouth, Plymouth Albion and Doncaster Rovers surviving in League One and Lincoln City and Forest Green Rovers maintaining their League Two status.

Neither received a medal during the presentation ceremony after last Sunday's game against Huddersfield because they have appeared in only four Premier League games each.

And Guardiola admits he may put the duo on the field at some stage just to make sure they qualify for the honours.

Guardiola added: "It looks ridiculous in all respects. All respect", he said. We want to see them repeat this success and continue playing the standard of football that we've seen this season. They are champions. They worked from day one to the last one, training with us, in the locker room, training.

Southampton are expected to play as defensively as possible as they only need to avoid a heavy defeat to stay up, and that is only if Swansea beat Stoke.

"They are champions. It doesn't matter they don't have medals. That is my opinion".
